GenomeZipper Report

The GenomeZipper uses a novel approach that incorporates chromosome sorting, second generation sequencing, array hybridization and systematic exploitation of conserved synteny with model grasses. It allows to assign 86% of the estimated about 32,000 barley genes to individual chromosome arms. A series of bioinformatically constructed 'zippers' integrate gene indices of rice, sorghum and brachypodium in a conserved synteny model and assemble 21,766 barley genes in a putative linear order. The genomeZipper files provide an ordered, information-rich scaffold of the barley genome.

The GenomeZipper data can be downloaded here or can be accessed via individual “ILL“ genetic markers on the marker report page (e.g. 2_0011) by "Search for Genetic Marker by Marker ID".
